Femi Branch has reacted to crossdresser Bobrisky's conflict with Edo State Indigenes last weekend.
Bobrisky was in the region for an event and used his Snapchat to express his delight at being ther.
In his festive mood, he invited the Oba of Benin to marry him.
The state's residents were angry and they came out in force to protest him for making such disparaging words about their monarch.
Bobrisky later apologized publicly for his remark.
Femi Branch claimed in an Instagram live session that Edo indigenes came out to denounce Bobrisky's remark because they revere their king.
The actor wondered if this could happen if Bobrisky requested a Yoruba queen to marry him.
“A lot of people meet me and say, ‘I don’t really watch Nigerian movies but I watch your own movies’.
"With due apologies, that is one of the dumbest things people say. Is my own movie a Togolese one? That is one of the reasons I respect Benin culture.
"Look at what happened recently. Bobrisky made a joke. But, there are some institutions you don’t joke with.
"Bobrisky could say he is a Yoruba guy (or babe); however ‘she’ wants to be addressed. He must have been seeing how some Yoruba Obas have been behaving in recent times.
"That must have made him feel he could make such a comment about the revered Oba of Benin. It was when he made that statement he realized the Oba of Benin isn’t just any king.
"Some people thought the reactions were a bit too much but Benin people don’t joke with their culture. And that is because the Oba of Benin does not ‘carry himself’ anyhow.
"Our culture and tradition are dying by the minute and people don’t even seem to be concerned. There was an uproar by the indigenes of Benin because they don’t joke with their king and their king also doesn’t joke with their tradition.
"Do you think if Bobrisky had made such a statement about a Yoruba oba, people would have talked?
"Let us tell ourselves the truth. Is it normal to see our kings on Instagram frolicking with ‘commoners’?”, Branch wrote.
